This and so much more makes a Vi-Spring bed the most perfectly supportive, and most sumptuously comfortable bed in the world.

If you have never slept like that before, it can be a life-changing experience. If that was not enough a Vi-Spring bed is guaranteed for life. It is no wonder Vi-Spring is the number one selling luxury bed in the world. Call or email today to see how inexpensive a Life-Changing sleep can be.

green shoots. I am thrilled to welcome you to the premiere of Luxe Interiors + Design, New York. After launching regional editions of this magazine in markets across the country, we are especially excited to fill our pages with design talent, ideas and resources from across the tri-state area. We’re kicking off this spring in pursuit of optimism, creativity and new inspirations. Fortunately, we’ve come across much of it this year, starting in January at Maison & Objet in Paris, where green hues seemed to dominate furniture and accessories, and continuing with an upbeat mood at design markets in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The evening before I wrote this letter, we hosted dinner with a group of designer friends at San Francisco’s stylish Twenty Five Lusk. During dessert, Ted Boerner posed a thought-provoking question: “Do you know your life’s purpose?” Consider that for a moment while I share my response: “I’m not exactly sure and don’t mind being ambiguous about it.” Perhaps that’s because I consider uncertainty and curiosity to be welcome mats at the door of creativity and reinvention, an environment where ideas take shape and green shoots sprout up. All of us here, however, are quite assured when it comes to our passion for this magazine, and to serving our readers and the design community. Let me share an exciting project that will be in full bloom this November⎯ Maison de Luxe, our first national designer show house at Historic Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills, taking place in partnership with the City of Beverly Hills and the Friends of Greystone. We are delighted to have 25 of the nation’s top interior designers reimagine this exceptional estate. It is also our privilege to have Holly Hunt serve as honorary chair. Stay tuned…
IN BLOOM With Barry Dixon, Randall Whitehead and Susan Inglis at our panel for Design San Francisco; with Roger Thomas and Donghia President Crans Baldwin at Rubelli; with Nobilis President USA Jannice Reynolds at Maison & Objet.

premier. It is with great pride and joy that I welcome you to the premier issue of Luxe Interiors + Design, New York. Some of you already know and love Luxe from our other 11 regional editions, or you’ve picked up a copy at a private jet terminal. Now, by popular demand, we’re bringing Luxe to you in Manhattan, Westchester County, Fairfield County, northern New Jersey, the Gold Coast of Long Island and The Hamptons. Once you’ve gone through this issue, I’m sure you’ll agree that we’ve created something truly unique—a magazine that offers access to the regional design and architecture scene while also covering national design news and trends. Luxe New York is your go-to guide to discovering and mining the best local and national resources for design, decorating, architecture and renovation. Bringing a new magazine to life is a herculean task and requires the hard work and dedication of a myriad of people. To all those involved, I extend my heartfelt gratitude. A special thanks to our advertising partners who’ve shown their belief in the power of Luxe Interiors + Design by supporting our launch issue. Our corporate motto is, “always exceed expectations,” and we aim to do so starting with this premier issue.

DESIGN Just months after the one-year anniversary of his death, the fashion world—and, indeed, the world at large—is still reeling from the sudden loss of designer Alexander McQueen. His penchant for complex storytelling and over-the-top presentations challenged fashion conventions, and his absence reverberates strongly in the industry today. This spring, The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art will honor his legacy as artist and auteur in Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. On view from May 4 through July 31, the 100-piece retrospective will explore the Briton’s body of work, ranging from his 1992 postgraduate collection to his final posthumous runway show in 2010. Themed galleries such as “The Savage Mind” and “Romantic Gothic” will take viewers deeper into the mind of this dark genius. metmuseum.org; 212.535.7710

PRODUCT IN PIECES We’ve long been fans of the exquisite craftsmanship and attention to detail that go into the mosaics by Sicis the Art Mosaic Factory. Now, the Italian brand has teamed up with fashion icon Christian Lacroix for a line of home furnishings. The designer (who partnered with Sicis independently of his own company) drew inspiration from his hometown of Arles, France, known as a treasure trove of Roman tiles and antiques, while focusing on maintaining clean lines and comfort. The result is a decidedly Old-World-New-World hybrid; look for it this June. sicis.com
DESIGN The allure of Miami Beach remains strong for international hotel brands, as yet another luxury project just opened on famed Collins Avenue: Dream South Beach. Vikram Chatwal Hotels, owners of upscale properties crisscrossing the globe, scooped up two Art Deco icons, the Tudor Hotel and the Palmer House, and merged them into a Moroccanmeets-1970s fantasyland. Designer Michael Czysz of Architropolis, a Portland firm known for its work with W Hotels, created a sexy, serene ambience with a cool color palette, mood lighting and sleek custom furniture. Highlights include the Chopra Center & Spa, the rooftop pool/lounge space Groovedeck and The Tudor restaurant by chefrestaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian. dreamsouthbeach.com; 888.376.7623
ART MIX MASTER Reconsider your concept of color: That’s both the request and goal of Carlos Cruz-Diez. This FrancoVenezuelan artist views color not as a static property but as an active process of the eye, and his exploration of color has been the driving force of his five-decade career. The first large-scale retrospective of his work, Carlos Cruz-Diez: Color in Space and Time, will be on view at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston through July 4. The show’s 150 works span from the 1940s to present day and include a dizzying array of media, from paintings (such as Chromatic induction 53, right), silk-screen prints and videos to room-size environments, architectural models and even a recreation of the artist’s studio. Elements of engineering, color theory, kinetics and craft all play a role in his interactive art, which often involves impressive production as well. mfah.org; 713.639.7300

BOOK BON VOYAGE If you just can’t squeeze in a jaunt to France this summer, reading Kathryn Ireland’s new book might be the next best thing. In Summers in France (Gibbs Smith, $35), readers tag along as the Santa Monica-based designer and her family enjoy a visit to their home in the French countryside. First, Ireland sets the scene, evoking the quaint charm of the medieval town of Montauban via snapshots, sketches and journaling. Then, the consummate hostess takes you inside their renovated farmhouse and her signature bohemian-chic style, sharing before-and-after photographs, guest room must-haves, marketplace shopping lists and recipes—overall, a formula for effortless entertaining that you can apply right at home. kathrynireland.com
MATERIAL ALL THE TRIMMINGS From season to season, Perennials Fabrics withstand whatever Mother Nature brings, and that makes the brand a perennial favorite for outdoor textiles in our book.

The four new trim styles, Fringe Benefit, Borderline, Spiral Cord and Cable Cord, are available in 14 colorways. perennialsfabrics.com; 888.322.4773

MATERIAL OFF THE WALL Just the name of Studio Hérisson—hérisson means “hedgehog” in French—is a cue to the offbeat sensibility of this new wallpaper company. Laguna Beach partners Ben Rubin and Rowan Entress hope to revolutionize the wallcoverings industry with their custom offerings, which users can order to their specifications online and have at their doors within days. The designs themselves, from a roster of contemporary artists and designers, range from retro-modern riffs to surreal pattern play, like Butterflower (above). studioherisson.com
SETTEE PHOTO: DWM | MALOOS.
Reimagining classic forms in a modern context is the forté of designer Maloos Anvarian, of DWM|Maloos, who credits her mash-up aesthetic to a multicultural childhood, which includes stints in Azerbaijan, Iran and France. Now in San Francisco, she draws from an equally wide range of influences (from John Galliano to Dorothy Draper to Philippe Starck) in creating her past-meets-present furnishings. A case in point: In her Mod-Louis Settee (left), Anvarian takes an antique Louis XVI-style chair and substitutes Plexiglas for the conventional upholstered surfaces. dwm-maloos.com; 415.864.3857

ART CRAFTING HISTORY American decorative arts and craft traditions—especially those born in wartime—are the inspiration for Allison Smith: Piece Work, on view through May 29 at the MCA Denver. The Oakland-based artist creates works that engage observers in the craft as well as the storytelling that surrounds it, such as her large-scale braided rug, which she started herself and had completed by gallery visitors. Accompanying the exhibition, which comprises sculptures and works on paper (such as Untitled, excerpted left), will be programs that welcome area artists, craftsmen and visitors to create their own works in the museum. mcadenver.org; 303.298.7554

MAD FOR MOD Palm Springs recently played host to the sixth annual Modernism Week, honoring the clean lines and whimsical elegance of design, architecture and culture in the 1950s and 1960s. During the 10day event, guests were privy to architectural tours of the area’s mid-century modern sites, as well as films, lectures, an architecture symposium and Mad Men-worthy parties in private homes. The center of all the action was the Riviera Resort & Spa, a historic landmark known for its intriguing wheel-shaped design and celebrity clientele (including Elvis, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin). A recent multimillion-dollar renovation polished up this mod gem while giving it a fresh 21st-century spin.

We have multiple generations of people who have decided that furniture is not just a career but a vocation. In production, you can only take a machine to a certain point, and then you need that eye and finesse that only human sensitivity can provide. The atmosphere in the workroom is collaborative and creative. There’s a sense of art and craftsmanship and family. Despite the economy, we’ve had growth, and I think it’s because people see how our craftspeople want to serve them. We don’t dictate, and we don’t ask customers to compromise.

M AR Y N I CHO L S BALDWIN HARDWARE
BALDWIN HARDWARE IS THE AMERICAN DREAM COME TRUE—AT LEAST, IT IS FOR SEVERIN FAYERMAN, A WWII SURVIVOR AND REFUGEE WHO ESTABLISHED THE COMPANY IN 1946. IT HAS SINCE SET THE BAR FOR STYLE, QUALITY AND DURABILITY, WITH SEVERAL OF ITS LINES STILL BEING MADE IN ITS READING, PENNSYLVANIA, FACTORY, WHERE THE PRIDE IN THE AIR IS PALPABLE, SAYS SENIOR PRODUCT MANAGER MARY NICHOLS.
There’s a tremendous amount of pride in the craftsmanship and quality of the product line. You can sense it throughout the entire facility. The average tenure of our labor force in
Reading is probably 30 years, where sons and fathers work side by side. When we are the ones bringing a concept from cradle to grave—in the fact that we have the designers here and the engineers in the factory— it brings the whole story together. It’s important that we control from concept all the way through to when the consumer gets it on their door. The amount of man-hours that go into the Archetypes line, for example, is astronomical as opposed to a fully automated factory. It’s anywhere from 15 to 20 artisans physically working on the product after concept, so every order has 15 to 20 people touching it along the way. Baldwin is an investment. We’re not the cheapest hardware brand, nor will we ever be. We want to make sure that people’s expectations are exceeded when they choose to invest in us.

HEADQUARTERED IN BAY SHORE, NEW YORK, TEXTILE COMPANY DURALEE HAS GROWN LEAPS AND BOUNDS SINCE ITS START IN 1952, ADDING SEVERAL LINES AND A FURNITURE DIVISION TO ITS OFFERINGS. BUT, ACCORDING TO SENIOR STYLIST LAUREN PELUSIO OF THE DURALEE FABRICS DESIGN STUDIO, SOME THINGS HAVEN’T CHANGED, INCLUDING ITS FAMILYRUN STATUS AND ITS SUPPORT OF U.S. MILLS FOR SELECT COLLECTIONS.
As a hands-on, family-operated business, we can be nimble to trends and change directions as we see fit. We don’t have to answer to a
plan that is developed years ahead and can react when necessary. We buy a lot from domestic mills. We always go to them first. It’s a long-term partnership with the mill, and they can get us products faster than other countries. In our company, you can be a customer with a small problem or a big one, and your issue might wind up on the president’s desk. We are in touch with our consumers at the very highest level. We can make changes at the drop of a dime if we deem them necessary. What most interior designers are interested in are things that they don’t find everywhere else. So that’s the true key to the craftsmanship: where the mills are constantly coming up with new things that we have not seen before.

W HAT W A S T H E E X P E RIE N CE L IK E P UT TI NG T H IS B O O K T O G E T H E R? The book was a lot of fun but also a lot of hard work. From styling all of the shoots around the world, working on page layouts, selecting images, etc.—I have been thoroughly immersed in every part of the process. YOU’RE KNOWN FOR WORKING WITHIN A NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE. WHAT’S THE KEY TO CREATING A ROOM WITH IMPACT WHILE USING NEUTRALS? You highlight and emphasize using texture. I am not against the use of color and use color frequently; it’s just that color is used to accent rather than as the palette. YOU WROTE ABOUT CREATING DISPLAYS OF OBJECTS. WHERE ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE OFFBEAT PLACES TO SHOP FOR THEM? I love finding items whilst I travel, coming across a small shop that may not look like much from the outside but, upon entering, is a treasure trove. Never judge a shop by its exterior.
This living-dining-cooking venue is emblematic of Hoppen’s skill in space planning, as the room is segmented into three functional zones while maintaining a sense of flow and cohesiveness. The monochromatic color palette is another Hoppen trademark, drawing interest from contrasting forms and textures.
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THE AVERAGE PERSON MAKES IN DECORATING? Poor space planning, resulting in too much or too little in a room. Always remember to plan, plan, plan—and then plan a little more if you want everything to be perfect.

“There are no rules. And if they did exist, they should be broken or at least put to a very tough test.” —Charlotte Moss
Charlotte Moss Decorates: The Art of Creating Elegant and Inspired Rooms (Rizzoli), $50
CHARLOTTE MOSS Charlotte Moss New York
THI S I S YO U R S E VE N T H B O O K . H O W I S I T DI FF E RE N T F RO M T H E RE S T ? In so many ways, they’re all very similar because they all speak to a philosophy of trusting your instincts about decorating. I want it to be a kick in the pants to compel readers to go do something they’ve never done before but always wanted to.
Moss designed this bangle as part of her Wanderlust Collection for Halcyon Days. Marrakech, $700; halcyondaysonline.com
In typical Moss fashion, all of the rooms in the book—which were created for past showhouses—start with collages full of the designer’s far-flung influences.
YOU WROTE ABOUT WOMEN OF STYLE FROM THE PAST WHO INSPIRE YOU. ARE THERE WOMEN OF TODAY WHO DO THE SAME? There are a lot of people in my business who are doing exciting things. I love Alessandra Branca’s work because it’s bold and beautiful and fresh. And Mary McDonald, her work is very colorful and alive. YOU WROTE THAT YOU’RE A COLLECTOR. WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR COLLECTIONS? Oh my god, I have too many. My most significant collections are my paintings of interiors, my 18th- and 19th-century garden plans and my bronze perfume burners. And I think I have now reached the age where I have to stop. WHERE ARE SOME UNLIKELY PLACES WHERE YOU DISCOVER GREAT FINDS? If you’re a hunter, there’s no place that’s unlikely because you shop everywhere. I don’t care if it’s all those shows out in the Hamptons or whether I’m in a little stall in the Paris Flea Market—you just find things.
For this great hall, Moss drew inspiration from the English country house West Wycombe Park, whose golden-hued façade is echoed in the ochre walls. The focal point of this comfortable gathering place is a central table stocked with books and curiosities that encourage guests to linger.
IN WHAT WAYS DOES YOUR SOUTHERN HERITAGE SURFACE IN YOUR DESIGN? It’s not so much in the physical; it’s in the ease and hospitality that rooms express. If a room just feels rich, who gives a damn? What are you going to do to make it inviting? And that is the ability—which is a sixth sense, in my belief—to really make a room welcoming. And I think you can do that if you live like that. And I think Southerners live like that.

“I am a big fan of The Rug Company, and I like everything about this carpet: from the beautiful images of hummingbirds in various stages of flight to the fine and detailed execution. It seems a tad menacing but in an amusing way. The rug is truly a remarkable piece. I’d love to use it for one of my fast-moving, multi-tasking clients. I think it’s a clever reference to our overachieving lifestyles.”

The late, great fashion icon Alexander McQueen joined forces with The Rug Company to create this opulent collection of rugs and pillows featuring the dramatic, eye-catching designs and skilled craftsmanship for which the Brit was renowned. Composed of cashmere aubusson, this flat-weave rug’s dark background offsets the bright colors of the hummingbirds’ jewel-like plumage.

“This vase is like a piece of jewelry for a room. Like adding a beautiful gold cuff bracelet to a simple dress, the piece is strong and feminine at the same time. The combination of gold and white is so classic! I often use it in my designs when people want a neutral room. This vase would be perfect on a fabulous tabletop or in bookshelves as a pair to add some glamour. It would be gorgeous mixed in with other white ceramic and gold objects as well.”

As bold, dramatic and original as the late ceramic sculptor Waylande Gregory himself, this graphic vase dazzles through its use of porcelain ceramic and 22-karat-gold luster.

“I love this item for its sheer simplicity and straight-tothe-point mentality. I would go for this fixture when in need of a light source that is not trying to vie for attention with the rest of the environment, whereby it’s a complement to the story, not the main protagonist. I often use this type of fixture, of similar scale, clustered in a row to create a rhythm. This would work well over a countertop or any long, narrow space.”

A contemporary pattern with platinum embellishments—rendered by hand—takes center-stage in this Limoges porcelain salad plate from Bernardaud. The company’s head creative designer, Catherine Bergen, fashioned this botanical image in effervescent hues of red, purple, pink and orange (shown here), offering a vibrant dose of color to any tablescape.
“For those not lucky enough as myself to enjoy the glories of California’s golden poppy in person, here is the next best thing, surrounded as if by the settling flakes of a snow globe. I tend to choose my plates in white or a simple variation on that theme and allow the food to do the color work. This plate is a jolly place to start a meal; it almost seems a shame to put food on it.”

French designer Philippe Delzers created this elegant cabinet as part of The Appartements Privés for Élitis. Delzers envisioned a modern collection with an ethnic twist, referencing long voyages and African legends. The cabinet’s bronze-sculpted handles with glass cabochons appear like jeweled bracelets against a scratched-wood exterior powdered with gold.
“This cabinet reminds me of the great pieces by Eugene Printz from the 1920s and ’30s. I love the leg and handle detail as well as the overall finish. It looks like a very rich piece. A pair of these in a big entry with beautiful ceramics or sculptures on top would look great. Similarly, a pair in a living room flanking the fireplace would be dramatic and wonderful.”

Research Plan: “We both have friends who are lucky enough to have fantastic outdoor spaces in New York, so we started our search with them. Many of the owners let us meet their landscape architects, who then were generous to share their other clients’ spaces.”
City Challenges: “We found the intricate watering systems and maintenance programs for the gardens to be much more complicated than a landscape in the country. On one terrace on the 76th floor, all of the furniture and sculptures were bolted down to prevent everything from blowing away in extreme winds.”
Fringe Benefits: “The biggest luxury that rooftop gardens offer is the ability to have outdoor time in the privacy of your home. To be able to just open a door and experience the most amazing views of the city is a very special extravagance.” Recurring Theme: “The terraces we liked most were those that enabled the owners to

The Fine Arts Building. “Sometimes it’s reproductions, sometimes antiques. If you like a reproduction, why not?” The foundation of it all is Swedish design, which he studied in Stockholm under the wing of Carl Malmsten, one of its originators. Bolander eventually settled in Long Island, where he and his wife, Nadine Kalachnikoff, opened an antiques business that introduced neoclassical Gustavian furniture to the United States. Currently, the unstoppable Bolander is preparing for the autumn launch of his painted furniture line, reflecting Carl Malmsten’s philosophy of incorporating the natural world into design. “That was his legacy,” Bolander says. “He was an extraordinary man.” larsbolander.com; 212.924.1000
LARS BOLANDER Top Shops: I like Nicholas Haslam’s shop and David Linley in London. There are several shops in Paris on Rue du Bac that are wonderful. I always buy my vests there.

Collection: Art and books. Also furniture, but I don’t think I can collect any more because I have too much of it!

Eakins was joined by Lethbridge three years after the firm’s inception and today the company offers rugs and fabrics in four all-natural materials—wool, linen, cotton and silk—and a virtually limitless array of colors and styles. Staying true to the duo’s original mission, each rug is handmade at their 22,000-square-foot South Norwalk, Connecticut, studio. “We oversee everything from the spinning of the raw material to the hand-dyeing of the yarns to the finished product,” Lethbridge says. “There isn’t anyone else in the industry who can say that.” elizabetheakins.com; 203.831.9347

should be accessible, at some level, to anyone who looks at it. Isn’t a Picasso, among other things, a beautiful, finely made and therefore decorative thing?” And, Faulkner argues, just as the finest art possesses multiple levels of entry, so do the best rooms. “For me, visual comfort—scale, lighting, movement, tonality—is just as imperative as physical comfort.” Lately, the painter and antiques aficionado has become increasingly influenced by the natural beauty of the countryside surrounding his home and studio in Hudson, New York, which explains the creation of his most recent abstract compositions of white-barked branches against eerily dark, textured backgrounds. “I find the hyperreal eyes on the stark wood surface of the trunks to be as fascinating as a nightmare.” frankfaulkner.com; 518.755.3074

stone & til landscape profess The insider Guide to discovering home design experts
BARTELS-PAGLIARO ARCHITECTS, LLC Bartels-Pagliaro Architects was founded as a design-oriented studio in 1974. Our firm believes that practicing architecture as a performing art leads to satisfied clients, exceptional projects and the highest quality of construction. Everything that man builds is by definition “architecture.” It is our responsibility to instill in everything we conceive and build Vitruvius’ meaning for that word: “utility, commodity and delight.” Other firms may equal us with the first two qualities; we challenge them to match us with delight. The experience of architecture over the ages provides a rich and solid foundation for contemporary practice. Least important among its legacies are traditional styles. More important is the process of discovery, leading to knowledge, fueling creativity and resulting in art. We want to bring the idea of Gesamptkunstwerk (total work of art) to each and every project. This requires an excellence of execution that only our decades of collective experience can provide. Clients place their faith, hopes and future in our hands. Our commitment is to deliver a project that makes them and architecture proud.

What are your favorite types of styles to work on and why?
One that progresses smoothly in the client’s mind from conception to completion, and way beyond.
We continue to respect the tradition of architecture: to provide “commodity, utility and delight” and to achieve timelessness.
We often say that defining a style limits possibility. We work in our own style because it is genuine and honest. Its flexibility creatively accommodates our clients’ wishes.
FEATURES: The quintessential imagery of this Shingle-style house, nestled on a classic Connecticut cove, gives way to an ultra-modern interior of sunbathed materials and flowing open space. Context can be respected, but it is not a restraint.
SPECIAL ADVERTIS ING SE CTION
FEATURES: This space is the living heart of a five-pavilion private Adirondack camp-inspired residence on the shores of Lake George. We have literally brought the forest’s trees and boulders into the home.
FEATURES: The magnificence of this site is obvious, but the challenges of designing and building it were daunting. Luxurious living in this home is not the problem; providing comfort and confidence in the face of raging storms and swelling seas is an architect’s responsibility.
builder Jablonski associates When it comes to creating custom homes or embarking on massive renovation work for his exclusive clientele, Jeremi Jablonski believes in taking the road less traveled as a builder. His firm, Jablonski Associates in New Canaan, Connecticut, handles only two or three select projects each year so that his team and the client can approach the process as something more than just a job. “When you go high into the mountains, you hire a mountain guide; when you sail on the ocean, you hire a skipper,” Jablonski says. “That’s my role. I have a strict business discipline, but when you work with me, a relationship develops. We work together every day; we go on a journey. And it’s a fun one.” That approach has endeared Jablonski, a third-generation builder from Poland, to executive-level customers that expect a home project to run as smoothly and with as much attention to detail as one of their businesses. Jablonski’s team gives its clients all that and more in a variety of styles. “We’ve worked with one client for five years,” he says. “We did a custom Colonial house in New Canaan for them. Then we did a beach house in Long Island, followed by a modern project in Boca Raton. Not many builders travel across the country for one client, but that’s the kind of relationship we build.”

What influenced your early projects?
What distinguishes your eco-friendly work?
What is your overall philosophy as a builder?
My first clients were charismatic business leadersâ€”and I learned from them. You take their ideas, and you try to structure your own business using those principles.
Our team does Energy Star certification. We did a restoration project in Greenwich and the final numbers showed that the house was twice as efficient as most brand-new houses.
I like to work with people who are fun to work with. For us, itâ€™s about doing one project at a time and having a great working relationship to build the perfect home.

history EostonE “Absolutely breathtaking” is how Eostone’s natural history artifacts are described by those who look to the past to create today’s amazing interior designs. For more than 20 years, Arron Rimpley and Gregg Whittecar have been in the art and antiques business. While traveling around the world searching for amazing objects to bring to their clients, they discovered the fascinating realm of natural history. “Each fossil is a snapshot in time and a timeless piece of natural art,” Rimpley says of their artifacts. Eostone derives its name from a combination of the Eocene period, during which the specimens once lived, and the dramatic layers of limestone from which their fossils are unearthed. “Because we are uncovering nature as opposed to recreating it, each piece truly is unique,” explains Whittecar. “No two specimens will ever be the same.” Eostone murals are currently gracing some of the finest homes, yachts and commercial spaces on the planet as more and more collectors seek to own one of these coveted artifacts. Not only are these fossils stunning, there is something about them that draws your curiosity on a profound and deep level.
Gregg Whittecar Arron Rimpley 2190 nW 87th Avenue Doral, FL 33172 email@example.com eostone.com
“our passion is to bring the finest natural history antiquities to collectors, architects, interior designers and museums worldwide.”
FEATURES: This triptych (three-panel) mural measures 76 inches high by 88 inches long. Unlike other fossil formations around the world, where mostly fragments of specimens are found, Eostone fossils are often perfectly preserved in their entirety.
FEATURES: Clients enjoy owning a piece of history, such as this irregular-shaped mural containing a fossilized piranha that measures 43 inches high and 60 inches long. Natural-shaped murals are designed to achieve a floating effect when placed on the wall.
q a q+a
How did you get involved in fossil artifacts?
Which fossils are the most interesting to you?
Do you think the use of fossils as art is a growing trend?
We were designing a private art gallery for a New York client when we discovered natural fossil art. We immediately added fossil relics to our selection of antiques.
The most interesting fossils are the rare finds within the quarry—turtles, crocodiles or a perfectly preserved plant fossil, like a palm frond or palm flower.
Definitely. Part of the attraction is that these creatures lived 50 million years ago, yet we can still enjoy their beauty today and learn about the Earth at the same time.
FEATURES: Every Eostone fossil mural—like this one measuring 48 inches high by 71 inches long—is a labor-intensive project. The works of fossil art are prepared by hand and contain authentic specimens dating back 50 million years.
sPECIAL ADVERtIsInG sECtIon
FEATURES: The private quarry where Eostone fossils originate was once a thriving freshwater lake. This allows for a variety of specimens—including the turtle shown here—as well as palm fronds, crocodiles and a variety of fish.
FEATURES: A fossil mural provides the focal point to this living room. Eostone murals are available in a variety of colors, ranging from chocolate brown to bluish gray, depending on the stone layer where they are found within the quarry.

“I’m not the
kinda-sorta-maybe type.” Certainly no one would accuse him of that. Case in point: the circumstances surrounding the purchase of his jewel-box apartment in the Gramercy Park neighborhood of Manhattan. For the record, Passal, principal at Robert Passal Interior & Architectural Design, wasn’t actually even looking. He just happened to accompany an apartment-hunting friend to see the place, which was being liquidated by the estate of a tenant who had lived there for 35 years. “The bricks were coming through the plaster,” he recalls. “There was avocado green shag carpet in every room. The kitchen consisted of a slop sink and two overhead cabinets. I said, ‘I love it!’ It had great pre-war architectural structure.”

That structure, however, wasn’t immediately apparent upon observation. True, it was “like a center-hall colonial,” he says, in that there were private quarters to one side of an entry hall and public rooms to the other. But whatever architectural details had adorned those rooms in 1927 when the building was erected

were long gone. So Passal’s first order of business was to restore its glorious period character. He designed all the ornate moldings, casings and baseboards to reflect the architecture of the time, as well as built-in cabinetry and shelving in the study and living room. And, recognizing his own unpredictable predilections, he says, “I kept elements—like the colors of the walls—quite neutral so everything could change.”

His approach to furnishing the modest but newly splendorous space was simple: “Buy what I like and make it work.” And, indeed, what else can one say about a living room that gathers together a custom velvet sofa and mirrored coffee table with a muscular 1920s French Deco armchair, a curvaceously feminine 19th-century French bérgère from the estate of flamboyant decorator David Barrett, a 1980s Dakota Jackson cabinet and two Michael Lucero ceramic foo dog sculptures wrapped in colorful yarns that were salvaged from dumpsters outside the Missoni atelier? In the dining area, Passal juxtaposes imperial Russian-style chairs with metal Jansen Directoire versions, and a $125 console scooped up at auction hovers over two hirsute Les Lalanne sheep sculptures. The furnishings span from the 18th to the 21st centuries, Passal observes. With his signature deep belly laugh, he adds, “I like to joke that it’s a little bit country and a little bit rock ’n’ roll.”

HISTORY CLASS Passal designed millwork in the dining and living rooms to mimic early-20th-century architecture. He also closed off the door that formerly led from the foyer into the dining room (where the console now sits at left) and hung an Indian-style ceiling ďŹ xture from New Yorkâ€™s old Rainbow Room in the living room.
PERIOD MIX A graphic black-and-white Stark carpet sets the bold tone for the living room, where furnishings span from the 18th to the 21st centuries. A 1920s French Deco armchair rests in a corner, surrounded by a vintage Victorian horn table, a custom antique-mirrored coffee table and a 1970s acrylic lamp set atop a vintage latticework end table. A pair of Michael Lucero foo dogs wrapped in Missoni yarn sits on the fireplace.

A transgressive rock ’n’ roll spirit certainly does inform much of the art Passal collects. Atop the Dakota Jackson cabinet are works by various envelope-

I don’t like anything shy.” Yet he is no snob either.

for the object.” And that is exactly what distinguishes Passal’s digs: They are positively brimming with passions. And, honestly, it couldn’t be any other way with this designer. “I’m constantly exposed to fantastic things,” he says. “Occasionally I come across something I absolutely have to have, and I just can’t let it go.” L

sions, a boxy ersatz colonial went up on a desirable Hither Lane acre. It looked out of place alongside the grander estates, until two men from New York City bought the well-situated property and, realizing it deserved more of a house, hired Southampton-based architect James McChesney, principal at James McChesney Architect, to design an extensive remodel. McChesney, working with Sag Harbor, New York, builder Martin Mannix of CCMS, retained the simple structure of the original house as a central element, adding wings on either side to approximately double its size. â€œThe owners were

very decisive and had a lot of good design ideas,” McChesney says. “They wanted to make the house more of an estate property.” Today, the dwelling has a commodious living room with a high, peaked ceiling, a new master suite carved out of a former garage, banks of French doors and windows, and an expansive roof deck. “We turned the old living room, which had low ceilings but nice cabinetry and a fireplace, into a music room that you now walk through to get to the one-and-a-half-story living room.” The homeowners, an attorney and an investment firm executive, had no desire to make a showy statement on the outside, McChesney says. They wanted a traditional shingled exterior that would meld politely with its neighbors. But the interiors would tell a different story, and that’s where architectural and interior designer Marshall Watson, owner of New York’s Marshall Watson Interiors, came in. His mandate: create a sophisticated, modern interior that nods to the

says. “The challenge was to give an unstuffy, modern edge to a traditional shell.” The result is a cohesive and soothing weekend home, carefully edited for quality and clarity. Or, as Watson puts it, “succinct.” The décor takes center stage against a backdrop of pale neutral walls, walnutstained and natural stone floors, and, in some rooms, wood-planked ceilings for warmth and texture. Watson, who was responsible for all the interior architecture and decoration, found myriad ways to bring the country vernacular together with city sophistication. In the new living room, for instance, which serves as a connecting element between the low-ceilinged rooms of the original

house and the new master suite, the peaked ceiling is clad with wide barn-like boards, lacquered high-gloss white for what Watson calls “a loft-like feel with a harder urban edge.” The grand living room also contains the house’s most striking tour de force: a fractured-limestone chimney breast. “We could have stopped halfway, but we brought it all the way up to make the ceiling soar,” Watson says. The dramatic fireplace creates an intriguing textural foil for a custom willow chandelier and Shaker-style paneled built-ins with a pickled patina, which warm the room visually while disguising media equipment. The homeowners, who are modern design enthusiasts, helped choose furnishings ranging from classic to near-avant garde. Well-proportioned, custom-designed

PERFECT HARMONY The built-in bookcases and traditional mantel were retained in the original living room, now known as the music room (a grand piano rests at the side). The clean-lined sofa, side tables and armchair are all vintage modern pieces from Century Furniture. The hand-stenciled sisal carpet adds texture and a relaxed, beachy feel.
SIZED UP Architectural additions at the rear of the house include a spacious roof deck off the upstairs bedrooms, a covered porch and a bank of French doors and windows. The living room is the connecting element between the new master suite at right and the original house.
GRAPHIC DESIGN A large bed custom-designed by Watson has “quite a bit of presence” in the new master bedroom, which has a 15-foot cathedral ceiling. The graphic fabrics on the bed and windows are intentionally whimsical, as is the attenuated vintage lamp on the painted Dunbar dresser.

upholstery in contemporary woven fabrics is enlivened by creatively assembled vintage pieces found in local antiques shops. One vignette combines a leathertopped sofa table with a 19th-century cast-iron base, a 1960s Op Art-inspired table and still-futuristic 1970s chrome chairs. With the radical upgrade and a newfound sense of place, the house finally appears worthy of its address. In sum, says Watson, “We took a nondescript house and made it into something that reads ‘The Hamptons.’” L

A bold statement for any designer to make, but, judging by Scalo’s repertoire of residential projects that blend modern glamour with classic sophistication, she was right on point. Take the recent renovation of a 12,000-square-foot Greenwich home she did for a young couple and their three teenage girls, which seamlessly melds timeless elegance with Scalo’s fresh interpretation of the classics. “I want my work to be specific to each client,” she says. Tailoring her projects to fit the exact needs of a family does not happen without careful attention to detail. Scalo describes the interplay between client and designer as that of a theater production or the way she would approach a film. The total picture must reflect harmony and beauty. It needs to have the right scale and texture. The designer achieves this by looking at every point of view. Scalo observes homeowners in much the same way: By taking note of how they dress and live, she learns what they’re truly looking for.

So, when the owners of this Georgian-style manse first approached Scalo to helm the redesign of their home, she had already begun her process. “The wife looks like she could be a model from a Michael Kors ad, and yet she is the mother of three girls, the wife of a handsome husband and the owner of three adorable miniature pooches,” she says. “World travelers, they entertain frequently with extended family and friends.” Scalo played off their innate glamour as well as the home’s good bones and architecture. The underlying aesthetic was to be gracious and elegant. “Design is not a frivolous pursuit,” Scalo says, “but rather a means to instill beauty into our surroundings, which adds value to a person’s life.” This philosophy has practically been ingrained in the designer since birth. Scalo, whose mother attended the Rhode Island School of Design, recalls one outing when she was taken to a Frank Lloyd Wright house before she was even of kindergarten age and recognizing how its beauty could enhance one’s life.

A world traveler herself with an eye for fashion and an extensive background in fine arts, Scalo chose coloration, fabric, furnishings and artwork based on what she felt the homeowners would find beautiful. The result is a visual equilibrium and continuity from room to room. Much of the pieces were acquired at Scaloâ€™s eponymous design studio and showroom, which she opened in 2000 as a means to fill the void of what she couldnâ€™t already find in the area. Scalo herself designs a line of furniture exclusively for her studio, which includes pieces in this home, such as the deco-inspired dining chairs and hand-planed pedestal table, and the cherry wood farmhouse-style breakfast table.

MASCULINE VIBE Traditional mahogany-paneled walls in the family room add a feeling of masculinity, which is further enhanced by the industrial stainless-steel travel trunks by Halo Styles on either side of the custom sofa, the leather end table by Baker and the custom steel chandelier. Draperies crafted from Schumacher’s Imperial Trellis fabric and an iron-based coffee table with a gold-leaf ﬁnish reﬂect the metallic gold-leafed sheen of the ceiling overhead.

Throughout the home, Scalo used a color palette that flows from room to room while respecting the classic linear architecture of the 10-year-old home. The designer employed a neutral base with subtle shades of silver, evoking sophistication and a sense of peace. Textured and patterned wallcoverings, such as the metallic Remembrance dining room wallpaper by David Goldberg, and unexpected infusions of color, like that in the custom chartreuse silk draperies that dress the windows of the master bedroom, provide the visual punch. “Many people come to me because of my signature style,” Scalo says. “I try to interpret their requirements through my own aesthetic sense. I understand them intrinsically.” Ultimately, Scalo’s understanding of both the lifestyle of her clients and the integrity of structure and site yielded a harmonious residence. “The home is associated with a standard of beauty and luxury that is typically Greenwich,”

Clean surfaces, sleek yet utilitarian hardware and a custom spring-green window treatment above the French doors add to the crispness of the traditional countrystyle kitchen. The light fixture is from Lynne Scalo Studio.
FARM TO TABLE A perfect adjunct to the kitchen, Lynne Scalo’s design for the breakfast room is steeped in traditionalism but made modern by its sleeker proportions. The custom, cherry wood farmhouse-style table is paired with Scalo’s Louis-Louis chairs upholstered in Jerry Pair’s Sacred Cow white leather. Three custom, Noguchi-inspired ceiling lanterns are artfully hung above, creating sculpture in the space.
SILVER SPOON Scaloâ€™s combination of vintage (the antique Venetian mirror) with traditional (the custom, hand-planed pedestal dining table) with modern (glass candelabras from Global Views and David Goldbergâ€™s antique silver Remembrance wallpaper) lends an ethereal feel to the dining room. The console at left, featuring mother-ofpearl inlaid in walnut, is custom, as are the deco-inspired dining chairs.

The Ursa wallcovering by Trove envelops the room in a muted gray. The Anna Mirror by Julian Chichester and the custom, mother-of-pearlinlaid dresser add elements of intricacy.

the designer says. What is unique is the modern twist she puts on it: It maintains its distinct style, both classic and modern, while reflecting the values of an active and vivacious 21st-century American family. “One of the most pleasant things that happened during the course of us working together,” the designer says, “was when I received a phone call from the husband and wife, saying how I truly captured the aesthetic, artful feeling they were going for and what a pleasure it was to come home to.” L

S I M P A T I C O A T F I R S T S I G H T . That pretty much defines the client-
designer relationship that began in early 2010 when Chee Jamison, after catching a glimpse of a project by designer Matthew Frederick in a magazine, walked into his studio and shop in Gladstone, New Jersey, and asked for help in decorating her new home. Though she’d never hired a decorator before, she sensed she needed one. After selling the house on a 40-acre horticultural farm she’d owned with her husband who’d passed away years before, Jamison moved into a three-story, 19th-century farmhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania—located just a few minutes from Peddler’s Village, the complex of restaurants, retail shops and an inn founded roughly 50 years ago by her late husband that Jamison now runs—intent on making it her “happy house.” “I made up my mind when I met him,” says Jamison of Frederick. “I saw his fabrics, saw his store and I knew we were on the

INTERIOR DESIGN Matthew Frederick, M. Frederick LLC BEDROOMS 3
SQUARE FEET 4,700
SITTING PRETTY A cozy seating area occupies one half of the great room, formerly used as an art studio in the 1920s. Designer Matthew Frederick chose the tufted Coco Settee, upholstered in Kravet velvet, and two tightback Lilly Chairs in Lee Jofa fabric to surround the metal-based and StarďŹ re-glass-topped Amsterdam Coffee Table, all from his own M. Frederick Furniture collection.
RUSTIC ELEGANCE Vintage-style pieces, such as the neoclassical Biedermeier chest from Councill Furniture and custom hand-blown mirror by C.R. Currin, were chosen to complement the rich history of the centuries-old residence.
C O N T I N U E D F R O M PAG E 197
That style is the “everyday elegance” that has become Frederick’s trademark over the last 15 years, both in the interiors he designs for his largely residential clients and in his line of furniture, accessories and lighting, which he markets under the M. Frederick Furniture and M. Frederick for Chelsea House labels. Clad in Bucks County fieldstone, the house (part of which dates to 1840 when it was built as a two-family home for twin brothers) had been extensively renovated by its previous owners, two men who’d given it a distinctly masculine look evocative of Ralph Lauren.
C O N T I N U E D F R O M PAG E 199
“The renovated house had dark colors that, while appreciated, were not reflective of the feeling that Chee wanted,” says Frederick, who happens to be a native of the area. “Refined feminine elegance was the goal for the entire space. But not anything too girly.” To brighten up the ambiance, Frederick removed dark shades and curtains, which robbed so much of the light and views, and installed softly colored full-length draperies in wool and linen. He chose a white European lacquer to accentuate architectural details and millwork, and dressed the dining room and living room—formerly an art studio added on in 1920 and used for many decades by local artist Paul Froelich—in white grass-cloth wallpaper. This expansive doubleheight space with exposed beams is the light-filled center of the house.

Furnishings throughout were chosen for comfort and elegance. Frederick incorporated numerous contemporary metal, glass and stone elements from his own collection, including a custom glass-and-metal coffee table, faceted crystal table lamps and a marble-topped and copper-finished side table, into the furniture plan. He grounded his color palette in hues indigenous to the area (gray and blue from the stone, red from the clay soil) and referenced them in the silk and mohair velvet, boiled wool and linen fabrics used for the upholstery.

One of the homeâ€™s five fireplaces sits in the dining room, where the ownerâ€™s vintage dining table and chairs (reupholstered in Stark fabric) accommodate guests for meals. The mantel displays several pieces of art given new life with custom frames.
FRESH START Frederick designed the great room to be elegant yet casual enough to be a family gathering spot when the ownerâ€™s grandchildren visit. Two crystal Ralph Lauren lamps with custom silk shades mirror the white high-gloss lacquered cabinetry on the far wall. The brown mohair velvet sofa and white linen club chair are both by Frederick, while the French Empire console is Councill and the hanging drum shade chandelier is from Charles Edwards.

great vintage pieces that I wanted to draw out,” he says. With the interiors mapped out, the designer then turned his attention to the exterior. Ensconced on a bucolic seven-eighths of an acre with its own trickling creek that abuts 300 acres of preserved land, the house features two patios and several garden spaces, which Jamison decided to transform into something English with Frederick’s help. “I redesigned the garden space to reflect a more even architectural symmetry,” says Frederick, who planted roses, specimen peony bushes, an espaliered pear tree and boxwoods around the home.
C O N T I N U E D F R O M PAG E 205
The enclosed dining courtyard—which sits inside a stone wall believed to be the ruins of a former outbuilding—features generous views of the meadow beyond. It is the place where, this spring, Jamison plans to accommodate her eight children and stepchildren, as well as her 19 grandchildren, who regularly visit from Virginia and California. “There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t appreciate every little thing about this place,” she says.

particular case in New Jersey, not only did a room evolve, so did a little girl. Susan Heidenberg was just a youngster when the iconic Buatta decorated her parents’ home. “I remember the magic, the genius,” she says. “Mario came one day with two trucks and umpteen objects and stayed until the late hours of the evening. I followed him back and forth until, finally, the envelope of a room had been completed: the walls, the drapery, the carpet. It was almost like a stage set.” INTERIOR DESIGN Susan Heidenberg, Susan Heidenberg Design ARCHITECTURE James Paragano, James Paragano Architect LLC HOME BUILDER Vito Doria, Airod, Inc. BEDROOMS 6

hired architect James Paragano, managing member of James Paragano Architect in Morristown, New Jersey, to custom-design a French chateau-style house for them in the northern part of the state that would accommodate their growing family. Six years later, an itch for change brought Paragano, along with builder Vito Doria, of Demarest, New Jersey-based Airod, back in for renovations and an addition that increased the total square footage to nearly 7,600. The larger canvas begged for updated interiors and, channeling her early connection to Buatta, Heidenberg confidently undertook the task herself. “I had no formal training, but you’re either born with a sense of proportion and scale, or you’re not,” she says.

As the little girl who shadowed a legendary designer while he worked, Heidenberg had absorbed much more than she realized, and that design sense immediately kicked in. “Susan intuitively knows,” Paragano says. “And with her law school foundation and creative flair, everything she does is very thought out and rational. She knows how to put that hierarchical order together.” Heidenberg, now principal of Susan Heidenberg Design, used her own home as the starting point for her career in interior decoration. “It is nothing of its former self,” she says of her home. “We live in it differently. It’s designed for my husband and I, our two daughters, two cats and three dogs.” Throughout the home, color drenches every space. “I need that around me,” she says. “It envelops me. I’m an optimist and an ‘up’ person.” Heidenberg, who favors the color-saturated works of abstract expressionists John Little and

curtains by Cowtan & Tout add graphic punch. Heidenberg brought drama to the opposite side of the library by painting the interiors of the bookcases chartreuse. To keep the room from being overly formal, she specified that the millwork be executed in knotty pine. “The dichotomy was brilliant,” Paragano says. “A more casual species runs counter to the millwork detail.”

Accents of pale blue, inspired by the house’s exterior shutters and treillage, are also present in the library and pivot effortlessly into the family room color scheme. Above the fireplace, a show-stopping piece by John Little—acquired after the room was decorated—both galvanizes the family room and harmonizes with each adjacent room. A turquoise ginger jar sparks the gallery, while vibrant shimmering pewter wallpaper from Roger Arlington adorns the dining room, each echoing the blocks of color in Little’s painting. Having evolved over a 10-year time frame, the home is a mélange of modern, antique and timeless pieces the designer acquired at different times. Heidenberg, who loves to collect, notes that they include a compilation of family heirlooms, flea market finds, serious antiques, major art, French Deco, Italian Deco, 18th-century American and even pieces from West Elm. “My aesthetic is clean, comfortable and eclectic, with influences of 1940s French and Italian décor, and, naturally, bits and pieces of Mario.” L
